Former Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is the newest member of the Miami Dolphins backfield. According to on March 27, Moreno has agreed to a one-year deal worth about $3 million.

Last season with the Broncos, Moreno shared time with running back Montee Ball in the Broncos’ record setting offence. He rushed for a career-high 1,038 yards and 10 touchdowns. After the team’s disappointing performance in the Super Bowl, Moreno expressed his desire to remain with the team, but that desire wasn’t returned, as the Dolphins were the only team to show interest in Moreno.

In acquiring Moreno, the Dolphins are hoping to boost their backfield that struggled last season with Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas not producing up to expectations. Knowshon Moreno had his best rushing game against AFC East rival, the New England Patriots. Moreno rushed for over 200 yards in a game the Broncos eventually lost. The Dolphins are hoping he produces like that as they try to overtake their AFC East foe.
